I also have the Purple Volcano (label has it as 'Barthirtythree') and it's bloomed non-stop each summer for the last 3 years - even after a light frost or two. We had a really wet summer so some of the lower leaves had mildew but it didn't stop the blooms. I just pinch them back as soon as the blooms die, and then I get another round or more each summer.
